Wild Keeper Spotlight: Jack and Joe

Wild Keeper Spotlight: Jack and Joe
Jack and Joe are better known on Instagram as the Twin Adventures and they have been Wild Keepers since June of 2020. They are based in Ohio and were introduced to getting outdoors through camping with their family growing up. They were lucky to be able to experience visiting local, state, and National Parks throughout their childhoods, bringing on their passion for hiking - their favorite ways to get outside! 

They both live by the mantra: Leave it better than you found it. Jack and Joe shared, "protecting our planet to make it enjoyable and livable for many years to come is something we think is very important to discuss."

When we asked them "what is your home base adventure area you love to explore in? What makes it special to you?" they shared, "Toledo Metroparks. We’ve always said it’s the best park district in the US. The rest of the country agreed in 2020: National Gold Medal Award for excellence in parks and recreation management."

An experience that shaped their relationship with nature and the outdoors has been COVID. They reflected, "the outdoors and parks were a great way to get out and escape the isolation of the pandemic."

When we discussed the things Jack and Joe value about the outdoors that they want to bring some awareness to they shared, "
Protecting our environment. Picking up trash, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Learning about and considering renewable energy solutions."
